Introduction
Swami Chaitanya Keerti became a disciple of Osho, the enlightened spiritual master, in the early seventies and has ever since been extensively involved with the media – as spokesperson for Osho Commune International in Pune for many years, founder editor of Osho Times International, editor of Osho World Magazine, editor and publisher of Osho books and a prolific write with several compilations in his name. He is presently the spokesperson of Osho World Foundation, based in New Delhi. I have been privileged to be his friend and fellow-traveller for more than 30 years.

Swami keerti’s endeavour is this compilation of individual articles he wrote for various newspaper and magazines over the past five years or so. During that period he conducted meditation workshops throughout and humour with a multitude of seekers and meditators. Inspired by their questions, current affairs and mundane day-to-day observations, he a remarkable mix of an insightful art of living, mysticism, anecdotes and wit.

This book has a lot to offer to the spiritual seeker as well as to the merely curious onlooker. Open the book at random and you will immediately be enthralled by the write – up on a very familiar topic but rendered here with a different vision than you would expect. Swami Keerti not only chats intimately with the reader, but also offers sound advice on how to improve one’s awareness, meditativeness and consciousness in life. He blends excepts from discourses given by Osho to highlight the various issues about love and reality, meditation and consciousness, spirituality and celebration, life and death.

Osho once said, “To be an Indian has nothing to do with geography; it as something to do forgotten the ways of the Buddha, and has forgotten how to live with Buddha. I am trying to reveal that treasure to you again. Let it sink deep in your heart. The first principle is the art of living. Be life-affirmative. Life is synonymous with God. You can drop the word God – ‘life is God’. Live with reverence, with great respect and gratitude. You have not earned this life; it is a sheer gift from the beyond. Feel thankful and prayerful, and take as many bites of it as possible and chew it before digesting it well. Make your life an aesthetic experience. And not much is needed to make it an aesthetic experience; just an aesthetic consciousness, a sensitive soul is enough. Become more sensitive, more sensuous, and you will become more spiritual.”

Back of The Book
Zen Says: This is all.
There is no other life is no other existence. This ordinary existence is beautiful. There is no need for other world; this world is more than enough. Zen is the greatest alchemy. It transforms your ordinary, mundane life into a sacred, holy life.

–Osho: Walking in Zen, Sitting in Zen

Zen means dhyan; it means meditation. The world dhyan is in Sanskrit. When it moved to the Buddhist language, Pali, it became Zhan. When it moved to China, it became Chan. When it moved to Japan, it became Zen. Zen mean dhyan – dhyan means a state of no – mind.

Swami Chaitanya Keerti became a disciple of Osho, the enlightened spiritual master, in the early seventies and has since then been extensively involved with media: he was a spokesperson for Osho Commune International in Pune for many years, and is the founder and former editor of Osho Times International, editor of Osho World Magazine, editor and Publisher of may Osho books, and a prolific writer with several compilations in his name. He is presently the spokesperson of Osho World Foundation, based in New Delhi.

In this book, Swami Keerti not only chats intimately with the reader but also offers sound advice on how to improve one’s awareness, meditativeness and consciousness in life. He blends excerpts from discourses given by Osho to highlight the various issue about love and reality, meditation and consciousness, spirituality and celebration, life and death.
